Early career funding opportunities information session

Submitted by Erin Pennington

Which early career funding opportunity is right for you? The Office of Research Development invites faculty to attend the virtual Early Career Funding Opportunities Information Session from 3:30-5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12, to find out.

The National Science Foundation CAREER program is one option for early career faculty, but sometimes it seems like it is the only option. Other prestigious young faculty awards are offered by the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Energy that are focused solely on research rather than the teacher-scholar role required by NSF.

An overview of young faculty career programs will be presented at this session followed by a panel of faculty members who have received young faculty awards from NSF and DOD. The panelists will provide insight on their awards, address why they applied to the program and what the award has meant for their career. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and talk with the awardees.

Please register for this event.

Zoom links will be sent out after registration and a few days before the event.
